My Students

My second-grade scholars come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. They range between the ages of 7 and 8 years old and receive their education in an urban environment with a population of 43.4% Black, Non-Hispanic, 26.5% Hispanic, 24.4% White, Non-Hispanic, and 4.6% Multiracial. My school participates in the Federal Free School Lunch program where 100% of our scholars receive a nutritional meal every day. They come to school despite what they are going through and work hard to accomplish set goals.

We are also one of few STEM schools in the school district that provides all of our scholars with an equal opportunity for innovation, engineering and design principles, and stewardship within the context of cross-curricular, authentic problem-based learning units.

My Project

We are no longer limited in how my scholars show off all the new skills they are learning conducting various STEM projects. We appreciate the HP printer that we received from a previous project that allows us to print as much as we need to and captures our work in color. Having a printer in the classroom allows them to print their work immediately and not only display it in the halls at school but take it home to show everyone what they know! It has helped in the class by supplying use with more colorful STEM cards for our STEM challenges.

Unfortunately, yet fortunately, I was able to teach my students that educators (adults) make mistakes too.

In a rush to secure a printer for our class, I forgot what happens when all the ink is gone. The instant ink cards will ensure that we have ink for the entire school year and that we won't run out while completing important masterpieces. Our class, as well as our school community, take much pride in our work, making the students more engaged in learning and more successful in retaining the knowledge for the future. They'll be able to explain their scientific research, share pictures of their history projects, practice and recite the poetry they are writing, brag about their awesome reading test grades, and SO much more!
